Clad in black from hi gleaming helm to the tips of his toes, he was all battle-honed muscles and rippling tendons. in his stark black armor he looked lethal and sinister, every bit as dangerous as his name implied. He was a man renowned for his courage and stength, for his prowess with women, for his ruthless skill in combat.

For it was her betrayel twelve years before that had turned him from chivalrous youth to hardened knight. It was she who made him vow to trust no woman - to take women only for his pleasure. It was she who had made him ruthless and bitter and incapable of love. But only she could unleash the apssion in his body , the goodness in his soul and the love in his heart.
Nice book, full of intrigue and adventure. I guess that if you are a fan of Connie MAson you will aprreciate this one since it is quite good. ALl the elements of a good romance. Tortured hero that at first because of a misunderstanding (typical in Ms MAson's books) grows to hate the heroine of the book who is totally blameless of course. ONe last thing - very nice cover - one could by this book only for it ..i think
